My God, it’s full of stars!
If you’re reading this, then I am already dead. Wait, that’s not right. Let’s start again.
If you’re reading this then you are invited to participate in the inaugural week if ill-advised community content competitions that we’re officially dubbing, "Bungie All Stars.” Each week’s competition will task you with using Halo: Reach’s suite of sweet in-game features, like Screenshots and Saved Films, or with using your own natural talent to create something that makes us wet ourselves with laughter, shed tears of joy, or gasp in terror at the mere sight of your foul and unholy exhibitions.
The rules are loosely constructed (and may not even be adhered to), the judging will be completely arbitrary (and wholly subjective), and the prize will be totally intangible: the seldom seen “Star” nameplate for use in Halo: Reach. As far as I know, there’s only one player in the world who already has access to it, and he works for us.
Last, but Not Least
If you want to be the second player to join the ranks of the Bungie All Stars, this week’s task is simple:
Using any medium you can digitize and send via email, whip up some fan art of what you think Auntie Dot would look like, if she could take on holographic form, ala Cortana or Benjamin Franklin.
You have from this very second until Thursday, January 13th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration (and public ridicule) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 1” without the quotation marks to help me keep nice and organized.
The size limit is 10MB and you should use your best judgment and discretion in terms of the nature of the content you choose to submit. After all, our mothers visit this site (yours too!).
- One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.
If you’re not classically trained in the traditional arts, don’t freak out. I’ll be on the lookout for everything from masterful Photoshop submissions to hilarious MS Paint portrayals. Almost
anything goes, as long as we can display it on the web (oh yeah, we'll probably display your submission on the web). You can even whip something up in Forge if that’s your preferred canvas. Again, if you can email the image to me, it’s fair game.
So, there you have it. Fame, fortune, and fan art are all up for grabs this week. Many will enter, few will win, but one thing is absolutely certain:
is the way the world ends.
